Consider a system with several input parameters; each input is a stochastic variable. The joint probability of all system outputs simultaneously meeting their specifications is found by a hitherto unpublished method called ``Multi-dimensional Convolution with Quantization.'' To use the method, two assumptions must be satisfied; the assumptions are milder than the two popular assumptions of linearity and statistical independence. There is one example.
